I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker at Massachusetts General Hospital working in Heart Failure and Transplant. I have a background in Addiction Psychiatry, Motivational Interviewing and Pain Management Social Work. Before MGH, I have worked at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. She graduated with an MSW in 2015. Her passion areas are chronic illness and pain and the ways Social Workers can enhance interventions for patients who struggle with pain.
This presentation will explore challenges in treating pain and in particular, chronic pain, and the ways in which Social Workers can build their expertise and skills in this area. This presentation will pay special attention to substance use disorder considerations in the setting of pain.
A passion for finding more peace with our pain.
